    I refreshed the backstage and was redirected to try to win a WalMart gift card. On a virus-free work computer. Anyone else having issues?

    I wouldn't. I put it there proactively in case Alex or someone wanted to investigate it. It has happened multiple times now.

    That sure stinks. So far that hasn't happened to me.

    It has happened to me a few times in the past several days.

    It stopped for now. Very annoying.


    EDIT: Thanks for moving this! I had forgotten about the front desk!

    I got it this morning. And have been getting it a lot in the past week.

    About to stay away for awhile, until someone figures it out.

    I got it yesterday morning while logging in. It redirected me to some survey.

    This has happened to me a number of times. I also get hit with the survey as well as a bogus Google Chrome update page. I'm almost at my tipping point, but no Friday meltdown for me. I'll just quietly go somewhere else when I've had enough.

    Download MalwareBytes, update, and run it...

    Nope. Malwarebytes won't fix this issue.

    I have Malwarebytes Premium, it's fully up to date and I've scanned my system. It found nothing. And I still get the bogus "Critical Chrome Update" redirect.

    Not nesessilary. As I wrote in the other thread.

    And yes, Spybot is probably the best of them all.
